And he couldn’t understand my first season like I think Erika [Jayne] said something to me, and my eyes – I didn’t know how to deal with it, and he said, ‘You’re not, I’ve never cried you like that. What’s happening?’ I think, ‘I think it was the pressure from the camera. Something has been added.’”
